Clan Childlaw has launched a Child Law Network, a free service to provide updates to those with an interest in Scottish child law.

Sign up to receive child law news in Scotland, including

  • notification and summaries of child law cases
  • legislative updates 
  • links to the latest resources, commentary & analysis 
  • updates on Clan Childlaw's case work, projects, events and training

Anyone can sign up to receive the updates by email. Using Mailchimp, Clan Childlaw will send out alerts and short summaries of developments in Scottish child law. For our launch we’ve gathered together news from over the summer which you will receive upon signing up to the Network. Thereafter you will receive news as and when developments occur. 

    The Child Law Network is a place to share YOUR child law news. By creating this network, we aim to provide a forum for child law news in Scotland and beyond to be shared. Please send us any material you would like to be included in our updates.

    Please note the summaries provided are intended for your assistance, but are neither exhaustive nor definitive. For a full authoritative report of a summarised case, please go to the official case report via the web link provided.
